KY3 of Springfield recently aired a story from the AP about how pet sitting is a growing trend.  417 Pet Sitting is living proof that more and more people are turning to licensed, bonded and insured pet sitting professionals to take care of their furkids while they are at work or play.  Not only are we trained to take care of the pets in a professional manner – but we follow the owners instructions as given in the consultation.  We know that more than pet or home care, our best service is peace of mind.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The nation’s economy may be struggling, but many Americans aren’t skimping when it comes to the care of their pets. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that many pet service companies in the St. Louis area are thriving.

Several pet-sitting firms say their business continues to increase even during tough economic times. Carol Mees, owner and operator of St. Louis Pet Sitters, says people care about their pets like family and prefer not to board them or leave them home alone.

Figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show the number of non-veterinary pet care companies in the St. Louis area rose from 84 in 1999 to 152 in 2009. Those numbers don’t include home-based
businesses or sole proprietors.
